Description

Simple Differential Evolution for Minimization.

Usage

2
simpleDE(fun, lower, upper, N = 64, nmax = 256, r = 0.4, 
            confined = TRUE, log = FALSE)

Arguments

fun

the objective function to be minimized.

lower

vector of lower bounds for all coordinates.

upper

vector of upper bounds for all coordinates.

N

population size.

nmax

bound on the number of generations.

r

amplification factor.

confined

logical; stay confined within bounds.

log

logical; shall a trace be printed.

Details

Evolutionary search to minimize a function: For points in the current generation, children are formed by taking a linear combination of parents, i.e., each member of the next generation has the form

p_1 + r(p_2 - p_3)

where the p_i are members of the current generation and r is an amplification factor.

Value

List with the following components:

fmin

function value at the minimum found.

xmin

numeric vector representing the minimum.

nfeval

number of function calls.
